Head Coach: God and Jesus
Assistant Coach: Mommy
Players: Luke, Ethan and Aaron
The white board: I added some black electrical tape to divide it up. Our actual chore system is not that much different, but different enough to make it easier for me and more exciting for the boys.
The only way we can function as a family is if we work together as a team and
keep our eyes fixed on our head coach: God and Jesus!
These are our Daily Drills (above). The boys got to choose two each that they will "practice" for one week (Monday-Saturday). No jobs on Sunday. The jobs are a little different and I wanted them to take some ownership by getting to CHOOSE their jobs. We'll pick new jobs every Monday.
These are our Weekly Drills (above). The boys each chose two that will stay the same for an entire month. Once they complete it for the week, they can take it off. Saturday will be pay day for the weekly drills. I like thinking about it being a month of training. They won't do it perfectly, but I hope to see improvement as the month goes by.
Here is what they choose. Hmmm... how come Aaron's jobs are the hardest ones? He eagerly chose them, but I'll have to be his helper for sure and set my expectations appropriately.
We'll see how it goes. Let's get this team moving!
Sometimes the set-up looks prettier then the results. I hope that is not the case. ;)
